KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) – A train crashed into a bus carrying passengers at an unmanned railway crossing in southern Pakistan on Friday, killing 14 people and injuring eight others, a railway official said.

Tariq Kolachi said the accident took place near the district of Rohri, about 470 kilometers (290 miles) north of Karachi. He said it was unclear who was to blame for the mishap.

Kolachi said the passenger train, called the Pakistan Express, was en route to Lahore from Karachi, the capital of Sindh province.
The injured were transported to area hospitals, he said.
Train accidents are common in Pakistan, mainly because of the poorly kept railroad system and automobile driver negligence.
